What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

Throughout the programme, all aspects of human physiology and healthcare were integrated into carefully designed modules and case-studies.

Some of the students were are profiling have in addition to their degree been awarded a departmental prize or award in recognition of their exceptional achievements. If this applies to you please can you tell us about the award you have received and what this award means to you?

I have been awarded two Dean’s Commendations during my degree. I strived to achieve the highest I could in my first year so I could have a get off on a good momentum for the rest of the degree, and I found having the target of getting it again pushed me to lengths which I would have thought too far. It meant so much to me to get the award in my first year but meant even more to get it in my second year also.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

I was a member of the cycling club in the second year and on committee for the cycling club in my third year.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

Honestly, being in Exeter during lockdown with one of my housemates was the most fun I have ever had. We spent time in our garden laughing and crying together as we worked for exams and cooked meals together. We went on runs together and discovered new areas of Exeter that are unbelievably beautiful. We found that being in Exeter during the hardships of lockdown made it more bearable as there is just so much to do and discover here. 

What will you miss the most about University?

The freedom and independence student life gives you.

What advice would you give to current and future students? (If you are an international student what would you like to tell future students from back home who might be thinking about applying to study in Exeter?)

 Don’t get pressured into doing things you don’t want to do, or likewise, from not doing the things which you want to do!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I will be returning to Exeter in September to start Medical School.
